Korean has two sets of numbers, namely native Korean numbers and Sino-Korean numbers (which are borrowed from Chinese). Both come in handy, but in a pinch, the Sino-Korean series is more important to learn.
Sino-Korean numbers are used for amounts of currency, telephone numbers, the 24-hour clock and counting minutes.

Native Korean numbersNative Korean numbers are used for hours and with counting words.
When counting objects, Korean uses special counter words. For example, "two beers" is maekju dubyeong (맥주 2병), where du is "two" and -byeong means "bottles". There are many counters, but the most useful ones are myeong (명) for people, jang (장) for papers including tickets, and gae (개) for pretty much anything else (which is not always strictly correct, but will usually be understood and is growing in colloquial usage).
objects (apples, sweets)개 -gae
people명 -myeong, 분 -bun (polite)
flat paper-like objects (papers, tickets, pages)장 -jang
bottles (or other glass or ceramic containers for liquid with a narrow mouth)병 -byeong
cups, glasses잔 -jan
animals마리 -mari
times번 -beon
machines (cars, computers)대 -dae
long objects (pens, rifles)자루 -jaru
small boxes갑 -gap
books권 -gwon
large boxes상자 -sangja
trees그루 -geuru
letters, telegrams, phone calls, e-mails통 -tong
boats척 -cheok
bunches of things such as flowers송이 -song-i
Note that when combined with a counting word, the last letter of numbers 1 through 4 as well as 20 is dropped: one person is hanmyeong (hana+myeong), two tickets is dujang (dul+jang), three things is segae (set+gae), four things is negae (net+gae), twenty things is seumugae (seumul+gae).
